Sayl Side ChairsHERMAN MILLER: Design Yves Béhar
Product Story. Good design, healthy support and exceptional value are always attractive – and Sayl delivers all three. By using smart engineering to transform simple materials, we were able to make Sayl attainable for more people.
A New Reference Point. Sayl designer Yves Béhar and our development team considered and reconsidered every part of the design – and, in the end, created a full family of seating that sets the reference point in its class for quality, performance and design.
PostureFit. The construction of Sayl’s 3D Intelligent suspension back provides passive PostureFit sacral support, which allows your spine to maintain its natural “S” shape and empowers your body to maintain a healthful posture with less fatigue.
Dynamic Support. The foundational shell of the fully upholstered work chair mimics the 3D Intelligent suspension, providing similar dynamic support in a more traditional back. An optional lumbar support is available on both work chair models and provides adjustment over a 10-cm range.
Inspired by Suspension. Inspired by suspension bridges – structures that deliver the most using the least material – Yves Béhar applied the engineering principles of these amazing structures to create Sayl. The Eco-Dematerialised design of the work chair uses less material in more inventive ways to provide ergonomic support for people up to 159 kg.
A Full Family of Seating. The smart engineering and high style of the Sayl work chair can also be found in the Sayl stool and side chair. Work chairs, side chairs and stools feature an upholstered seat with either a suspension or upholstered back. Side chairs feature either a 4-leg design, which stacks up to 4-high, or sled base.
Design Story. We asked designer Yves Béhar to design a highly affordable chair that would incorporate everything Herman Miller is known for – beautiful design, first-class ergonomics, elegant engineering and respect for the environment.

Designer: Yves Béhar
Yves Béhar is a thinker. And one thing he thinks about a lot is the future. You can see it in his designs, from his reflective red-lacquered laptop for Toshiba and his elegant closed-toe Footprints for Birkenstock to his refined Aliph Jawbone Headset for mobile phones. “I believe design’s purpose is not only to show us the future, but to bring us the future”, he states.
The founder of fuseproject (“dedicated to the emotional experience of brands through storytelling”), Béhar has been exploring the design world since his childhood in Switzerland. “In Europe, it is second nature to evaluate objects based on how they work and how they look”, he explains.
